The problem with the Fastlane main event

It’s no different, really, than the problem with Monday Night Raw’s Elimination Chamber main event just a couple weeks ago: It’s too predictable.

That doesn’t mean it will be bad. Indeed, Braun Strowman destroying everyone in the chamber was a fun time but the fact that we knew damn well Roman Reigns was winning that match certainly didn’t help leading up to it.

We’re in the same position with tonight’s (Sun., Mar. 11, 2018) Fastlane headliner at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. It’s a Six Pack Challenge for the WWE championship. Let’s break down who has a chance at winning.

John Cena: In their quest to make him appear a threat, they had him beat the champion in a non-title match to get here, after just walking in and demanding he get such a chance. It more or less buried the entire point of all of this. Despite that, he has no real shot at winning, which makes it even worse.

Kevin Owens: His story is now about Sami Zayn turning on him, which he did just days ago on SmackDown Live. His only shot at winning was when Zayn was on his side.

Sami Zayn: He never really had a shot at winning, he was just going to be the guy to help Owens win. Now, we’re supposed to think he does have a shot but, I mean, come on.

Dolph Ziggler: He’s here to show the world that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Baron Corbin: LOL.

AJ Styles: Yeah, he’s winning.

You’ve never heard of a classic Six Pack Challenge match, and that’s because they don’t exist. Maybe they’ll surprise us and this will turn out to be a lot of fun anyway. We can only hope.

Follow along with us tonight here.
